We Are Working To Bring ‘Eternals’ Back, Says Filmone

Filmone Entertainment has responded to rumors that the latest Marvel feature ‘Eternals’ has been banned from Nigerian theaters.
The film distribution business clarified in a statement posted on Saturday that the picture was temporarily halted, not banned, and as originally claimed.
“You must have heard the news that the much anticipated Marvel Movie, #Eternals, that was set to be released yesterday, has been temporarily postponed in Nigeria. Our team is working hard to ensure that we bring #Eternals to cinemas across Nigeria. Please bear with us as a new date will be communicated As Soon As Possible,” Filmone wrote on Instagram.
Remember that word of the film’s alleged ban made headlines on Friday, November 5, the same day it was due to be released in theaters.
While the National Film and Video Censors Board has not confirmed its role, the film has apparently been pulled from theaters due to its now-controversial kissing scene with two gay couples.
The Marvel film has also been banned in Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait due to a contentious sequence that Marvel has excised in order to modify the Chloé Zhao-directed picture.
Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani, Lauren Ridloff, Brian Tyree Henry, Salma Hayek, Lia McHugh, Don Lee, and Kit Harrington star in the film, which will be the first to show homosexual superheroes.
